Pictorial Biography of
Venerable Master Hua
The Master asked people whom he met where Wen Chi lived, but no one even knew who he was. Later, the Master met an elder Bhikshu who said, "According to what the Venerable Master has told me, this Wen Chi is a transformation body of Manjushri Bodhisattva." When the Master heard this, it was if he had awakened from a dream. He immediately bowed to the Bodhisattva in sincere gratitude.
The Gatha says:
body of Manjushri was just the beggar Wen Chi.
